Scholarly Communication


What is Scholarly Communication?

Scholarly communication refers to the system through which scholarship is created, distributed, evaluated, and preserved for future use. It encompasses both traditional modes of publication, such as journal articles, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings, and emerging channels for the communication of scholarly work, such as open access publishing, digital scholarship projects, online scholarly communities, and institutional and disciplinary repositories.
